Bloggy Giveaways Carnival Time! Five Winners!

It's that time again, my favorite time, Bloggy Giveaways Carnival Time! WooHoo! I can't wait to check out all the blogs, I don't even remember how many there were last time - at least over 900, and hopefully I'll win something along the way. So far there hasn't been a Carnival where I haven't won something. So what am I giving away? Well, ONE lucky winner will get a $10 Starbucks card (I know, I know, I giveaway a Starbucks card every time, but this time my husband said I could go all out and double the amount on the card, that's right people, this time the card is for $10), AND four lucky winners will each walk away with a box (well, actually a full-value coupon for a FREE box) of NEW Cocoa Puffs Combos cereal! This is the first new product from Cocoa Puffs since they were introduced in 1958! This new cereal has the chocolatey puffs along with the new vanilla puffs. YUM!
TO ENTER: simply leave a comment telling me your favorite breakfast cereal (if you don't have a blog be sure to leave an e-mail address so I can contact you) on this post by noon, Friday July 31st. I'll use a random number generator to pick the winners that afternoon during nap time. My giveaway is open to all US and Canadian residents, whether you have a blog or not, the cost of shipping is covered. My favorite breakfast cereal is Lucky Charms! Good Luck!


Just in case you needed it, here's proof that Maddox loves his new trampoline.

This is my 200th Post!

WOW! My 200th post. Too bad I don't have anything exciting to say. So I'll tell you about how spoiled Maddox has been this past week. First, I got him a huge set of really nice wooden blocks.

The set I got him is 20+ blocks bigger than this set. He likes them. Until today when my Grandma went and bought him his very own trampoline. Very similar to the one in this picture.

This blew the block set out of the water. He LOVES this! It got me thinking, my kid seems to now have every toy known to man, what am I going to get him for Christmas?

What's with the letters?

Maddox is crazy about letters right now! All he wants to do is talk about letters. He now knows O, B, R, and almost has K & X but still gets them mixed up sometimes because let's face it they look almost the same. This is all him. I will tell you that he hates the letter W. I don't know why, but he doesn't want to admit that it's even part of the alphabet. What I really don't get is that we talk about letters for three days and he already knows at least three of them, but we've been talking about colors for a while now and he still tells me that every color is blue.

Maddox "Mosh -Pit" McQuary

Let me start from the beginning. A few months back my brother and six-year-old nephew were in town and showed Maddox how to wrestle. Now, Maddox has taken it upon himself to educate all his friends in the fine art of wrestling. Thus, being named Maddox "Mosh-Pit" McQuary by some good friends of ours.

The Letter O

The letter O is a big deal in this house right now. Maddox is borderline obsessed with finding the letter O and declaring it an O, all the letter O's everywhere, in case you didn't know it was an O you know now. Really a pretty big deal considering that until this past week my kid could hardly talk. Tammy, his speech therapist, says that he has reached the springboard and his language is going to really start taking off. FINALLY! We only do his flashcards every night and hand out candy like it's going out of style. Now we're working on him putting the last part of a word on, so you might hear him say "Buh" slight pause "Sssss" for bus, but it's coming and he can say the letter O.

I'm Back

Well, I think I'm back to blogging after a short vacation. Just in time too because next week is the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival, and this time I'm giving away four prizes. Four prizes to four lucky winners. Interested? Come back next week.
